Summary

In the individual normal hill event, German’s Eric Frenzel led the jumping with a leap of 103.0 metres, earning 131.5 points. He was followed by Japan’s Akito Watabe and Russians Yevgeny Klimov, who later placed last in the 10 km run, losing more than four minutes to winner Frenzel. After jumping, America’s Todd Lodwick, who had dislocated his shoulder in pre-Sochi training, withdrew from the run.

From the beginning Frenzel led the field in the 10 km run but waited for Watabe to join him, which happened soon after the start. The two alternated the lead, keeping the chase group at a distance. Around 500 m from the finish Frenzel launched his final attack and easily advanced 10 metres ahead, ensuring his Olympic gold. Watabe took the silver medal and then the chase group arrived. From this group Norway’s Magnus Krog had the best reserves and earned the bronze medal, just ahead of Italian Alessandro Pittin, and his Norwegian teammate Magnus Moan.
